Can somebody help with this?
i had a similar unfortunate event ... my screen cracked when i hit the phone to the metallic frame of a chair (it slipped out of my hand )...
it cracked exactly like you people said... near the home button.
i ordered the display + digitizer and i anxiously await its arrival to see if i can replace the damaged one.
it is quite tricky to dissassemble the display part but hope to succed...
keep you posted with the outcome
It's NOT the same glue as in the S3, S1 and S2 can't have glass only changed. Check Le55ons on youtube... If you are going to try it make sure the glass is smached up GOOD, as in many TINY pieces. The first half went fine for me, but when I got to the larger glass parts I cracked the touch layer. Bummer(!). Newt time I'll try to smash some more of the screen with a big nail or something. Could work.
On S3 I completely removed a FULL glass and put it on a different screen. It's ok since its a different adhesive much softer, like a gel.
OK, I replaced my broken screen with the part of eBay the one with the frame and microphone, since its easier and its nearly the same price as screen +digitizer.
Now the phone look as new, because the frame got replaced too, but I can't control the brightness anymore, It stays on max, auto brightness doesn't work too, I'm using screen filter as the only workaround.
The lux sensor works OK cause I see it changing..
Also when I put the phone in download mode, I don't see the android logo, just black screen, but I know it enters cause Odin recognize it.
